Unconventional Western Americana-Inspired Shoes

SHOES 53045 'S Bold EASY RID’AIR Have Dropped

— February 19, 2020 — Eco
The latest release by David Tourniaire-Beauciel's contemporary footwear label SHOES 53045 is EASY RID’AIR and the silhouette is bold and unconventional. The aesthetic of the shoes built on two main inspirations. For one, the EASY RID’AIR takes cues from Dennis Hopper's cult-classic movie 'Easy Rider' which premiered in 1969. On the other hand, the chic silhouette also draws style cues from Western Americana. The hardware is completely removable.

SHOES 53045's EASY RID’AIR model will be available exclusively through the label's e-commerce platform. The pair will retail for $500 USD. The brand has decided to partially donate proceeds of each pair to benefit the environment. As a result, SHOES 53045 will plant a tree somewhere around the world for each pair that is sold.
